Join the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture and the Fordham Theatre Program for
Is Empathy Enough? Racial Justice and the Moral Imagination in the 21st Century
Monday, February 24, 2014, 6 p.m.
Fordham University, Pope Auditorium
113 West 60th Street, New York NY 10023
Racial justice remains elusive a half century after the monumental Civil Rights Act of 1964. Where law falls short, could an enriched culture of empathy produce the needed transformation in the American conscience?
Join us for a forum that mines the arts, history and theology to explore the power—and weakness—of empathy as a force for social change.
